Samsung Display will make better panels for the iPhone 14 Pro duo than for the vanilla models

We’ve known for a while that the vanilla iPhone 14 duo won’t have ProMotion displays (Apple’s marketing term for high refresh rate), but now it’s being announced Elec offers details on the exact type of screens that will be used.

The vanilla iPhone 14 (6.1”) and iPhone 14 Max (6.7”) will use LTPS back plates and what Samsung calls the M11 material set. This is the set of ingredients that go into making the screen panel. The M series of material kits are reserved for Apple’s iPhones and Samsung’s premium Galaxy phones.

iPhone 14 Pro (6.1”) and 14 Pro Max (6.7”) will use an LTPO backplane instead of enabling the ProMotion feature. They will also use the newly developed M12 material set.

For reference, the Galaxy S22+ and S22 Ultra used the M11 kit, the S22 got the older M10 kit. The upcoming Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold4 will be the first to use the new M12 material set.

Samsung will supply display panels for all four iPhone 14 models, and it has reportedly received an order for 80 million panels.

LG will also chip in and build panels for the vanilla iPhone 14 and for the flagship iPhone 14 Pro Max. These will be made with the RS-L material set. Last year, LG built iPhone 13 panels with the previous RS-K kit.

The elec the report does not mention BOE, which had reportedly secured a small order of panels, though not without problems.
